Parking Changes Coming to Lexington

Town developing an action plan to tackle long-standing parking issues in the Center

The Town of Lexington needs the community’s participation to launch the development
of an action plan to address long-standing parking issues in Lexington Center. The goal
is to make parking more accessible for all users, from regular lunch-goers to employees
and tourists. A proposal for action will be developed and presented to the Selectmen in
spring 2014. The public is invited to join the effort on Tuesday, December 10, 2013 from
6:00PM to 9:00PM at the Lexington Depot, located at 13 Depot Square, Lexington, MA
02420. You can also provide valuable input by going on-line to fill out a five minute

Over the years, town staff, committed residents, and business owners have studied
parking patterns in the Center as well as learned new approaches to better manage
parking. Beginning this December, the Town and Nelson Nygaard’s parking consultants
will engage stakeholders in a series of public meetings and coffee sit-downs to create and
advance an implementation package to the Board of Selectmen.

The implementation package may include new technology, enhanced payment methods,
paid parking, and changes to employee parking. Associated issues such as circulation
patterns, enforcement, and alternative modes of transportation will also be assessed for
their integration into the parking system. Fiscal analysis and ongoing maintenance will
ensure that final recommendations are implemented responsibly and sustainably.

Pre-registration is encouraged in order to provide refreshments and snacks; however,
drop-ins are always welcome. Please register at Eventbrite look for “Lexington Parking.”

Future meetings are scheduled as the effort evolves, please mark your calendars:
January 15, 2014 from 6:00PM to 9:00PM at the Lexington Depot
January 29, 2014 from 6:00PM to 9:00PM at the Lexington Depot

forum “LexEngage” and look for the topic entitled, “Parking Management.” You can also
